New Holland, Penn.—New Holland Agriculture has been honored with four prestigious AE50 Awards by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). The awards are presented for the most innovative product ideas to enter the market in 2011.
The New Holland award winners include two high-horsepower tractors with Tier 4 ECOBlue SCR engine technology, the SynchroKnife drive for New Holland’s new 880CF combine SuperFlex draper header and the MowMax II cutterbar for New Holland’s Durabine disc mower-conditioners.
The New Holland T8 Series tractors combine the longest wheelbase in the industry in a limited-overall length tractor with optimum maneuverability, stability, operator comfort and versatility. The 136-inch (11 ft. 4 inch) wheelbase combined with a sculpted hood and frame provides tight turning performance for row-crop applications, making these tractors ideal for planting and grain cart applications.
New Holland is the first manufacturer to offer optional PTO with 113 gpm remote hydraulic flow. The T9.560 provides the hydraulic flow to power large planters and seeders in the planting season and also is equipped with the PTO option to power grain carts during harvest. The tractor also includes the option of a four-corner cab suspension for increased ride comfort. The hood and cooling package were designed with consideration both for improved visibility over the hood and to provide easy access for cleaning the coolers. T9 Series tractors feature fuel efficient Tier 4 ECOBlue SCR engine technology.
